Excellent musician and teacher! I've recommended Uzi to several parents looking for a teacher for their students. He is very reliable.

he is a great and talented violist and a perfect teacher. I got guitar lessons from him. I was lucky to get a teacher like him. Wish him all the best, Uzeyir

I am Humay Gasimzade, pianist. I got chance to work with Üzeyir while we both were studying in Norway. He is absolutely amazing musician, high level artist and I am pretty sure he is as good in teaching too. I wish him best of luck. He is the right teacher to choose.

All my best,

This guy is amazing! Honestly I don't know why he is not charging twice as much for his lessons. He is incredibly patient, and on top of that he is super creative with what you can try to get the performance you want to get. I was able to master a technical element in just one lesson with him, despite it being out of my reach for years! And all of this aside, he is remarkably gentle and sincere musically. Thank you so much for everything, Uzi!

He is a great artist! He helped me a lot with advancing on viola, and also showed me how beautiful music really is, not just classical. I never wanted to practice, and now I do at least 2-3 hours every day! He is the best you can get! And, he is equally good on guitar, which he would sometimes use to show chords, explain harmony or even accompany me. Great guy, very kind and generous. I plan on studying with him for a long time!
